Fragments is Shuvashree Chowdhury's debut collection of poetry. It is an intuitive journey into various aspects of the human experience -- love, passion, jealousy, joy, spirituality and death. The poems engage deeply with the world -- turning each heartfelt moment in the hands like fragments of a broken mirror -- to examine with keen intelligence, the light passing through the countless shards, towards self-realization. The poems convey insights with a perceptiveness that is at once brilliant and sumptuously lyrical, vivid and kaleidoscopic, in a language that is elegant.The poetic journey gradually transcends into a serene, spiritually uplifting zenith -- weaving its way upstream through the rocky riverbed of the spirit -- the soul quivering, often crushing emotional currents.
